Dear Manju sharma,

According to Advocates Act, an advocate should not engage in full time profession other than law practice.  But he can work as part time lecturer in Law colleges and be a legal consulant in private companies.

You can apply for the suspension of your license till the time you work in private, and you can inform the bar to lift the suspension of license and you can practise from that period. or else you will be penalised as per the Sdvocates Act.

@Manju: Why not but provided it does not interfere in your normal practise. Right to life is also right to livliehood and Advocates Act cannot over rule the Constitution of India. Many  Advocates on record pratise all over through Registrars,lover court advocates. Many Supreme Court judges have setup Mega empires through their progeny advocates like many in the Bar Council itself. Still to on safer side you take the permission of the Bar Council. Just inform them but don't ask for permission as informing is a better deal than asking and if Bar Council does not notice than they shoulld get out of Bar Council. Then you also take expicit permission of the Supreme Court,rasing defects in the Advocates ACT vis a vis the Constitution of India.

In that case if any aggrieved party think reasonably that Advocate Act is bar to its funadmental right, it better to challenge the provisons of law through Appropriate Writ Jurisdiction
